The 12 seniors in the Senior Studio art class at Cranston High School East gathered at the Central Library on May 1 for the official opening of their art exhibition.
On display were six to eight pieces of art from each of the students, chosen at their discretion from their past four years of work.
“Several of them are also submitting their AP portfolios at the same time, so some of their artwork is being used for that also,” said MaryAnn Schultheis, East’s art educator.
The work includes three-dimensional pieces such as sculptures and others done using pen and ink, colored pencils and various types of paint.
Also on display were the students’ portfolios, which included their resume, future plans and personal philosophies.
The students were available to speak about their work and their portfolios and many discussed their future plans, which include careers in art, business, engineering and other fields.
